Sandycove, Co. Dublin

Sandycove is an area of Dublin, Ireland. It is south of Dún Laoghaire and Glasthule, but north of Dalkey. It is a popular Seaside resort.

Sandycove is well known for its gentlemen's bathing place, the Forty Foot, which in the past afforded a quiet swimming haven for males only. This remains a popular bathing place but now, mixed bathing is permissible.

James Joyce lived for a time in a Martello Tower situated beside the Forty Foot bathing place at Sandycove. The opening scene of Joyce's Ulysses is set in this tower, which now hosts a small Joycean museum, open in summer time. Bloomsday is celebrated in Sandycove in Joyce's honour on the 16th of June every year.

Near to the tower, on the seafront, is the unique landmark house designed in the Avant Garde style by Michael Scott, eminent 20th century Architect who made it his residence.
